Fifth generation in print

Family-owned business, Galloway Printers, which produces high-quality print for a range of clients across the North West and beyond, continues to go from strength to strength.

Followed a recent meeting between Managing Director Andy Galloway and Macclesfield MP, David Rutley, at a British Printing Industries Federation reception, David was given a tour of the company’s state-of-the-art premises at Poynton Industrial Estate.

Mr Galloway explained more about the wide range of print technologies that the company offers, including digital, reprographics, direct mail and online ordering services. He also demonstrated some of the specialist equipment, including the state-of-the-art Heidelberg digital and litho printing machines.

Established in 1870, the company was originally based at 14 Charlotte Street – n the heart of Manchester. Whilst the building housing its original premises is still there, Galloways moved in the 1930s to Salford, to a site later completely destroyed in World War Two. The firm subsequently relocated to Stockport in 1964, and then on to its current location in Poynton in 1989.

Andy Galloway said, “As an almost 150-year established business, Galloways has deep ties to the local area and we are very much part of the community. The visit was timely as we have just made a large investment in our new machines, and it was great to be able to demonstrate how even in our digital age, print continues to make a significant impact on the economy.” 

Mr Rutley commented, “Galloways has been at the heart of print technology in our area for many years, and it is great to see this long-standing family firm continuing to expand the services it offers and remaining at the cutting-edge of print development. I was pleased to visit Galloways premises and see its efficient operations for myself and wish all the company every success as they continue to take the business forward.”
